Founded in Paris in 2009, Trio Karénine bears the name of Tolstoy’s beautiful and emotionally honest heroine. The trio of Charlotte Juillard (violin), Louis Rodde (cello) and Paloma Kouider (piano) is acclaimed by critics and audiences for its musical integrity and passionate interpretation, and was the top prizewinner at the ARD International Competition in 2013. The group has performed in the world’s most prestigious halls, including the Philharmonie and Auditorium du Louvre in Paris, London’s Wigmore Hall, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Frick Collection in New York, Salle Bourgie in Montréal, the Konzerthaus in Berlin, the Herkulessaal and Prinzregententheater in Münich, and the Leiszhalle in Hamburg.

The ensemble received the prestigious Nordmetall-Ensemble Prize from the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festspiele in 2015 for its interpretation of Schubert’s “Trout” quintet, performed with bassist Laurene Durantel and violist Krzysztof Chorzelski (Belcea Quartet). Trio Karénine received the first prize at the International Chamber Music Competition in the Netherlands, is a laureate of the Joseph Haydn Competition in Vienna, and the recipient of the prestigious “Banque Populaire” grant. The trio is also a laureate of the Maurice Ravel Academy and the Charles Oulmont Foundation and was unanimously awarded the International Pro Musicis Prize in Paris.

The trio is a highly sought-after collaborator and has shared the stage with Adrien La Marca, Marie Chilemme, Alena Baeva, Hélène Clément, Raphaël Sévère, to name a few. The group is also a regular advocate of new music, performing works by Wolfgang Rihm, Philippe Hersant, Hans-Werner Henze, Graciane Finzi, Franck Krawczyk, among others.
